This course or study embraces Hook-Keeping, Commerciil
Arithmetic. Business Correspondence, and Penmanship. Drilli
will also be Riven in Commercial Law and Civil Govern ment
It is intended to make this department one of eminent utility.
The time has come when our girls as well as our boys should
have a practical business education. Many lucrative and hon-
orable positions are open to women qualified to All them;
besides, every housekeeper should know how to keep a comet
account of her income and expenses.
A successful business tuan, referring to this "new departure,"
writes us, "I am glad to see you have a commercial depart-
ment. Our women know very little about the everyday busi-
ness affairs of life. Many graduates can work out difficult
problems, and read Latin and French ; but how many can make
out a post-office money order, or tell the difference betweeni
draft and a check? You are on the right line : teach your girli
The instruction in this department aims at the highest style
of culture in classical music. The rule is to admit no models o!
doubtful merit. Our object is to give complete courses of
musical education, in singing, piano-forte and organ playing, to
those who have the requisite gifts and are prepared to submit to
the necessary discipline. The time required by each student to
complete a full course in any branch of music, and to obtain i
diploma, will be determined by her previous attainments, and
by the rate of her progress as dependent on her talent and
The subjects taught are the following :
1. Theory of Music— embracing harmony, thorough-baa
(obligatory for all organ students), counterpoint, fugue, compost
tion, instrumentation, and history of music. The instruction «
given partly in lectures, partly in classes, and partly In in*
2. nA5o.ronTF-.Thl8 includes elementary and technical
exercises, ensemble playing (duos, trios, quartets), and train! m
in artist.c performance, as respects style, expression, and artistic
conception. Especial attention is pa(d to position, touch fln K er-
| DK , etc. Beginners are not placed under inexperienced
teachers, but take lessons of the best Instructors For the
piano-forte, the works of Bach. Handel, Scarlatti, Clementl
Mozart, Cramer. Beethoven. Chopin, Weber, Oottschalk Men-
delssohn, Schumann, and Liszt form the foundation The text
books used are Kobler's Method, N. E. Conservatory Method,
Czerny s Studies In Velocity, Cramer's Studies, and Palmer's
Theory. There will be periodical examinations of every stu
dent; and her advancement will be determined by her prod
ciSDcy, as thus tested.
3. Organ. -The course includes everything necessary to give
the pupil a mastery of the organ in church, concert, or parlor
In church music, voluntaries, preludes, interludes, etc the
course is thorough. The productions of Rinck, Hesse Sudds
and others are used. Applicants for instruction on the organ
should have some previous knowledge of piano-forte playing
1. Class SiN«ixo.-ln this, there will be a two years' course
free to all pupils. The work of the first year consists of daily
drills on rudiments, transposition, Intervals, major and minor
scales, glees, and light choruses. Palmer's Choral Union is
used as a text-book. Second year's work will be a review of Ru-
diments and choruses in Choral Union, besides hymnology and
grand chorus work. Lessons daily. Instruction is also given in
breathing, sight reading, harmony, history of music, etc.
2. Voice Ccxttjbi.— Thto branch will be in the charge of a
teacher whose ability as a vocalist is unsurpassed. Careful at-
tention is paid to correct breathing, distinct articulation, and
proper expression. Instead of loud, forced tones, beauty and
purity of voice are secured. The Old Italian method is taught.
The vocalises and methods of Marches!, Concone, Vaccaj, and
Emerson are used, together with arias from the best operas, and
souks by Schumann, Mendelssohn, Pinsuti, Schubert, and others.
Applicants for instruction in voice culture should' possess a good
TOice, a healthy constitution, and an acquaintance with the rudi-
ments of music.
This department is directed by an accomplished artinr, t^
has devoted years to the study or art in its various branches, and
who seeks to cultivate in the pupil a love or the study, as wellaj
to impart technical knowledge.
The course includes tho following Drawing, light and shade.
still life, crayon, pastel, landscape, marine, china decoration,
nspOMMff, and portraiture in oil and crayon. Tho Art Hall is
commodious, well lighted, and admirably adapted to its uses.
Remarks on Course of Study.
All optional studies, such as vocal and instrumental music,
drawing, painting, French, Gorman, Spanish, and Qteek, ■
taught so as to interfere as littlo as possible with the regular
studies of the pupils. No pupil having commenced an optional
study can discontinue it without the permission of the Faculty,
given at the request of the parent or guardian. Pupils an
required to study Latin in order to graduate; but those who
decline to take Latin may, by completing the full English
course, receive a diploma as graduate in Science.
Pupils who are deficient in certain branches often desire to
graduate. These may pursue such special studies as willenable
them to take a regular class standing as soon as possible.
Young ladies who do not intend to graduate may wish to com-
plete special studies, or to enjoy the advantages of Music aid
Art. Such will be received, and, on finishing these subjects, may
reoeive a certificate of proficiency.
Many ladies, who intend teaching, or who have already
taught, desire a thorough knowledge of certain branches, at
well as needed instruction in Methods and School Management
Courses of instruction will be given to meet the respective wart
All special pupils boarding in the college must be subject to
all the regulations affecting boarding pupils.

religious and commercial relations with Mexico, a knowledge Z
Spanish is a desideratum. Wo have incorporated the las'
named study in our course and it will be taught by one who Z
made this language a specialty. uaa
Special attention is given to letter-writing, punctuation, pen-
manship, business forms, orthography, phonics, and English
composition Our vocal music is not mere practice for com-
mencement, but daily lessons in sight-reading, etc., are given
by a teacher of acknowledged ability. Members of the
advanced classes will have frequent reviews in all the elemen
tary branches, besides daily drills in orthography.
CHARACTER OP INSTRUCTION.
The teachers are all liberally educated, enthusiastic, and expe-
rienced. Their vacations are not spent in mere idle recreation
but in studying matter and methods, thereby better preparing
themselves Tor their special work. The teaching is thorough
radical; bold to adopt all modern books and methods that
are approved, equally bold to hold fast to the old that have been
found good. The course of instruction is rtiimrlirttoo, not dig-
it the lower elementary branches when advancing to the
higher, but incorporating; and studying them throughout the
ROUTINE OF STUDY AND RECITATION.
Pupils are rarely confined more than an hour at a time in
study and recitation. Short, stilted intervals for recreation and
physical training are incorporated in the schedule of daily duty.
My gymnastic exercises, under the direction of a competent
teacher, are required of each pupil. This system is claimed to
besuperior, highly conducive to health of body and vigor of

EXAMINATIONS AND REPORTS.
There will bo monthly written examinations, and, at the end
of each three months, a term examination, a report of which will
be sent to parents or guardians. The ilnal class standing ol
each pupil will be mainly determined by these term examlaa,
Ail members of the Senior Class whoso average standing is as
high as luiwty will be permitted to road original essays at Com-
mencement. The two members having the highest average dur-
ing their college course may, at the discretion of tho Faculty, be
appointed to deliver the Valedictory and Salutatory addresses at
Commencement, provided they have been members of the insti-
tution for at least Ave consecutive terms previous to graduation,
Ib the Junior class, twelve young ladles having the highest
class standing may be appointed to read original composition!
during the commencement exercises. To contend for this dis-
tinction, a young lady must have been a member of the class for
that entire collegiate year.
In the Sophomore class, as many as ten young ladies may be
selected to read or recite extracts during the commencement ex-
ercises. Theso appointments are made solely on the ground o!
superior excellence in elocutionary reading, good deportment
and attention to duty.
These distinctions aro awarded according to the relatra
standing of pupils for the time they are together in the same
class ; but in every case they must begin tho year together, com
plete every study, and pass all the required examinations.
Proper consideration is given, where time, labor, and expense
are required for extra studies.
f&- All dueB must be settled before any distinctions, awardi.
or diplomas are conferred.
Young ladies, on completing the regular course and standing
an approved examination, will be entitled to a diploma with tte
degree of A. B. Those completing the scientific course in lite
manner will be entitled to a diploma with the degree of B. 8.
Young ladies who have graduated at this college, or at institt-
tions of similar grade, may pursue a Post-Graduate course of
study. After completing this advanced course and passiogi
satisfactory examination, they may receive the degree of A. M.

Pupils desiring to take music or art, or both, in addition to
literary course, can find out cost of same by adding charges for
said studies as specified above. It will bo seen we have no inci-
dentals, and make no extra charges for any studies tauslitln

sider our rates cheap. They will compare favorably with those
of any similar institution in the South. For terais of payment,
see next page, under head of Stipulations.
Upon application, special rates will be furnished to two or more
pupils from the same family or community, entering college
during the same term.

All the above charges for board and tuition are required to be
paid or satisfactorily secured, one-third cash, one-third Decem-
ber It, and one-third March 7.
New pupils are char«ed from the beginning of the month In
which they enter, except for board when the entrance is after
the middle of the month ; but no pupil is admitted for a less
time than to the end of tbe term.
Former pupils, returning after the term has opened, are

the pupil exceeds one month; none for tuition, unless actual
serious illness demands the removal of the pupil.

It will be seen from the above that wc furnish a thorough and
complete collegiate education at lower rates than usual in insti-
tutions of the same grade. Our facilities for teaching have been,
and are being, increased. Our Faculty consists of highly edu-
cated and ex petteMMl teachers, and, while we pay strict atten-
tion to the ornamental branches, we have special regard for the
accurate scholarship of our pupils, and their training for the"
practical duties of life.

The main buildings are the College and College Home.
The Collego is built of brick and stone and covered with tin,
making it fire-proof. It is (.0x120 feet, two stories high, with
towered front. The first floor is divided by wide balls, crossing
each other at the center, thereby affording perfect ventilation.
Upon it there are six rooms, devoted to recitation, laboratory,
On the second floor is the chapel and a complete arrant-men:
of Music, Art, Society, and Library rooms, admirably adapted
to their uses, and convenient to the Chapel.
THE COLLEGE CHAPEL.
The Chapel is GOxlOO reet, with a capacity for 1,800 persons. It
is beautifully lighted by large windows, and has four entrances
It has been pronounced, by distinguished visitors, to beVt
finest audience room in the South.
THE COLLEGE HOME.
The Home is conveniently near the College. It has jur 1 : br«
repaired, painted, and rendered much more attractive. Itii
two stories high, built of brick, with tin roof, and contains seven-
teen rooms, eighteen feet square. Cross halls divide both floors.
Each room has two or more large windows, two doors, andi
transom over each door. The thickness of the walls of tbe
building is a protection aguinst the extremes of heat and cold,
and young ladies find their rooms comfortable in every season.
TEN THOUSAND DOLLASB.
The Trustees have just raited ton thousand dollars to enlarge
the College Home. Waterworks, bath room.", and other ooave-
ilenoea will be added. Thin nan addition will givo ns tmple ao-
eommodntloni for one handred boarders. Oat College Some
will now be 60] 160 f.-.'t, two stories high at one end and three
at the other. The boarding department now contains thirty
rooms for boarders, parlor, reading-room, kitchen, store-room,
pantries, and a Dining Hall 60x60 teet These rooms will all
be finished and furnished in modern style. Kaeh story of the
building has a hall running the entire length, with two cross
halls opening upon a double gallery in front. These halls af-
ford ample ventilation and easy escape In ease of lire.
The College building will also be much improved and orna-
mented. New seatings. maps, charts, and other teaching facili-
ties will be furnished. The grounds will be neatly enclosed and
Prospects for the coming session are cheering. The College is
steadily increasing in numbers and prosperity. Under the
present management, it began two years ago with about a half
dozen boarders and half a hundred pupils. Its instruction and
management have been endorsed, during the second year, by a
local patronage of eighty-four pupils, representing every reli-
gions denomination of the vicinity. Its increasing popularity
abroad is attested by the fact that, beginning its first year with
six boarding pupils, it ended its second with sixty-four. This
phenomenal growth has forced upon the judgment of the trustees
tbe necessity of enlarging the boarding department. As will be
seen above, a large sum has been raised, work has com-
menced, and ample room will be provided by opening of fall
session. They further endorse the present administration by
committing the college to their management for a period of
twenty years. This trust, however, in no way impairs their
official authority, Dor disturbs the relation of the college to the
Tho Alumna.' of the College hold an annual meeting to revive
the associations of the past and contribute, as far as possible,
to the prosperity of the Alma Mater.

butions from friends are earnestly solicited, and will bu duly
LITERARY SOCIETY AND LIBRARY.
The Irenian Society is accomplishing much in the Collejn.
Usually two societies exist in institutions of this class to encour-
ago rivalry, but. unfortunately, this rivalry, particularly anion?
girls, often generates bitterness, which wr hope to avoid by hav
ing but one. The Society meets Friday afternoon, and the rca
cises consist of reading*, narratives, recitations, essays, discus-
sions, etc., in which all the members take part.
By earnest efforts, the young ladies of the Society have com-
pleted their hall and library room. The hall is in the college
building, 90x34 feet ; library room, 1 Ix'io feet. These rooms fur-
nish a perfect outfit for the purposes of the Society. It is ear-
nestly hoped that all the friends of the Society will continue to
contribute books; second-hand books, if they are solid, and
proper for young ladies to read, are us valuable as new ones.
STUDIES OF BOARDERS.
Boarding pupils study in the afternoon, and two hours after
tea under the care of a teacher. No desultory or aimless study
Is allowed. This provision really doubles the advantages which
boarding pupils possess over those who are not inmates of the
house. Under such judicious regimen, pupils form habits ol
earnest and intelligent application, and, as a rule, our boarders
stand among the foremost of the school.

Every effort is made to sccuro the utmost neatness and order
on the part of the young ladies, in the arrangement and care of
their rooms, clothing, MHl persons.
The Matron inspects the rooms of boarding pupils daily, and
notes all instances of disorder, negligence, or UDtiditioss.
While no uniform dress is prescribed, every effort is made to
secure such plainness and simplicity in the style of dressing as
is consistent with sound economy and good taste.
MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ADVANTAGES.
We seek to give the most constant attention to the moral and
religious training of our pupils. Religious services are held
morning and evening. Pupils attend such churches and schools
in the city on Sabbath morning as their parents may designate.
Social religious meetings are held during the week. Riblo les-
sons are part of the curriculum. Sectarianism is eschewed, but
It is our aim to commend the Christian religion by precept and
HEALTH AND PHYSICAL TRAINING.
In no private household is there employed a closer or more
intelligent supervision over the inmates than is here exercised
over the health of the boarding pupils. The slightest ailments
are promptly treated. In serious cases, the best medical advice
is secured and competent nurses provided. Choiceof (hephgsi-
and of the system nj treatment rests with the parent, m6,
where made known to the President, is scrupulously respected.
All the conditions of proper sanitation are carefully observed.
Day pupils aro not allowed to expose their health. Little chil-
dren are provided with play-room within doors during the in-
clement winter weather. The regular drill in calisthenics, with
dumb-bells, wands, and rings, and in free gymnastics, aids in
promoting and maintaining sound health, muscular develop-
ment, and graceful carriage.

DOMESTIC ARKA N( I KM ENT8.
The sleeping apartments of the College are accommodated each
to four Inmates. The heavy articles of furniture, such as bed- '
steads, washstands, tables, wardrobes, and chairs, are furnished I
by the College. The boarders are expected to Turnish their own !
outfit for the room. Each one should furnish one pair of sheets,
one pair of blankets or comforts, one coverlet or spread, one pair |
of pillow-cases, one dozen towels. Each pupil should be trnj
with a pair of rubbers, a waterproof, and an umbrella.
Parents and guardians are requested to withhold from their \
daughters and wards the means of expensive dress. School
en should be plain and simple. They should, as far as possH
made at home. Ibo much tune and money ewe absorbed, if mak
here. Members of the Junior and Senior classes, on Comrs
ment occasions, will be required to wear plaim white dressi
void of ornament.
Young ladles boarding iu the Institution are not allowed to
open accounts at stores, or contract any debts. All necessary
shopping is attended to for tbem, either by some of the officers
or their ladies. No request from parents to allow their daughters
to do shopping for themselves, or for any one else, will be com-
All purchases are made for cash, which must, for this purpose,
be deposited with, some member ot the Faculty.
Boarders are not allowed to keep money in their rooms, i
at their own risk.
The Faculty, their families, and the boarding pupils, all par-
take at the same table, and constitute one large family, in which
the supervision and care of the pupils devolve upon the Presi-
dent, assisted by his associates. The harmonious and kindly
feeling thus generated obviates the necessity of an excessively
rigorous discipline. Confidence between pupils and teachers is
invited and secured.
Is mild but tirm. The pupil is taught to respect herself, and to
maintain her self-respect and the respect of those around her,
by observing the proprieties of life in all her conduct, and in
her intercourse with her fellow-pupils and instructors The
effect is first to establish good principles, and then govern her
by teaching her to govern herself in accordance with those prin-
ciples. Such an esprit de corps is thus secured as renders rigid
discipline rarely necessary.

These examinations give evidence of the fact that you have a
vigilant and an efficient corps of teachers.

LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE HISTORY
Wo propose to give tho readers of our bright Casket a brief
history of our college, its wants, and prospects.
The LaOrange Femalo College, founded In 1883, was. in its
infancy, an academy of high grade, and its first teacher of note
wao Rev. Thomas Stanley. In the year 1816, under the presi-
dency of Mr. J. T. Montgomery, a charter was procured, and the
academy became a college After several years of unprece-
dented prosperity— often more than 200 girls being in attend-
ance—the whole collego property was sold to the Georgia
Annual Conference of the M. E. Church, South. The trustees
elected a now corps of competent teachers, and, in September,
1857, the college began its distinctive work of Christian educa-
tion under tho presidency of Rev. W. G. Conner, a member ot
the Conference. It enjoyed patronage from all parts of this and
Under the presidency of Rev. W. A. Harris, D. I> . in 1869, it
took the lead of church schools in sending out the tlrst resident
graduate class in the South, of which Miss Alien Coital
Cobb, now a successful teacher in tho Wesleyan Female Col-
lege, was an honored member. Well established in a career of
enlarged and increasing usefulness, its work was arrested by a
disastrous fire on the 2Sth of Ifftrcb, I860. The college property,
consisting of a magnificent building, an ample chemical and
philosophical apparatus, a complete equipment of costly
musical instruments, large and well-selected libraries, was con-
sumed. But such a great work as tho higher education of
woman was not to be hindered -even by a calamity like this.
The friends of the Col lege rallied with willing hearts and open
purses to rebuild, and so'\j> the hammer of the carpenter was
heard. The completion of the work was prevented by the war.
Through the energy and perseverance of Rev. Jas. R. Mayson,
late president, the building was put in condition to be used. In
the midst of general depression and business prostration result j,
ing from the war, he succeedod in raising $10,000 for tho work,
principally from tho noble citizens of LaGrange. After several
y»ars of prosperous labor, he resigned his position in order to
return to the pastorate. The Trustees then elected Rev. John
f Ileldt, J). I» , Pn -ddent. Inobodienco to tills call ho left
the large* pastoral clmrgo in the North Georgia Con
ference. With an energy and devotion, born of high purpose
and strong conviction, he entered upon his duties The eduea
tional facilities of the College are being multiplied, its currieu
lum advanced, and its patronage enlarged. We are collecting
libraries and would mo* earnestly call tho attention of our
friends to tins Med. With this pressing want supplied the
boarding department enlarged, and the grounds beautified ' this
feUege will ho amply equipped for its grand work. These' facts
make their own appeal to the friends of Christian education
throughout the world. This college belongs to the church and
any aid afforded will be for the advancement of the causo of
Christ. Some of our sister colleges are tho objects of noble bene-
factions from large hearted Christian patriots from various
parts of the country. Would that some George I. Seney could
seeour opportunity and want, that his generous soul might be
moved toward us. No College can be found moro worthy. The
climate of LaGraage is healthful and tree from tho extremes
of heat aad oold; the air is pure and bracing. The College
occupies a moet commanding site, surrounded by picturesque
ludsoapee. All its conditions as an educational center are
dual, II not superior, to any in the South, and it cannot fail to
return large dividends on judicious investments in the future.
LAGRANGE FEMALE COLLEGE.
(Frcrn tin' o, In mliui En.|Ulrcr-8un, Sep., IMS.)
The LaGrange Femalo College is presided over by Iiufus W.
Smith, A. M.. a teacher of long experienae and rare <juali tics.
Mrs. Smith, whose quick, accurate knowledge of mathematics
and easy manner of imparting information have achieved for
her an extensive reputation, has charge of this department in
the College. There is a full corps of teachers, and in every
detail the College is well equipped. The graduates and former
scholars of Trot. Smith are his best reference. A thorough gen-
tleman, a pure man, and a disciplinarian and teacher of unusual
if. he is worthy of the largo patronage he has received.
« President and Mrs. Smith formerly had management of a nigh
ichool in Middle Georgia. Bar. Walker Lewis, Mr. G. Gunby
Jordan. Dr. Seth Jordan, and others probably in our community
received their school education and early training there. For
fears he has been President of Dalton Femalo (Jolloge. Parents

• We reprint from tho Wetleym Christian Advocate an article
from tho pen of Dr. Weyman H. Potter, its gifted editor, con-
cerning the outlook for the LaGrango Female College. It is a
deserved tribute to a school which stands among tho first
President Smith and wife are assisted by an able faculty-Pro-
fessor Euler B. Smith, whose capacity and success have Riven
him a high position among Southern educators; Mrs. Euler B.
Smith, who is a brilliant lady and a teacher without a superior
in her department; Miss Pond, the instrumental teacher, whose
past achievements are a guarantee that her work will always be
efficiently done, and the accomplished Miss Withorsnoon, one
of tbo first young ladies and most Rifted vocalists in the Bouth.
With such a corps of instructors thero can be no failure. The
College is enjoying great prosperity. The boarding houso is full
ami the locai patronage excellent.
(Extract from taOrangc Reporter, Juno 9, 1887.)
Last night ( Wednesday) saw the close of the best commence-
ment the college has known since the war, and that Is saying
much. It is no relloction upon any of the former Presidents,
faculties, or pupils to say this : it is only saying that there have
been growth, development; that the college is not only In the
van of loading oducational institutions, but that it has struck
out on a "now departure" of its own, and has before it a career
of great usefulness and prosi>erity. A great advance has been
made by the college within even a twelvemonth. New methods
bave been introduced and now inspirations breathed into its at-
mosphere. The discipline is admirable and beautiful, the course
thorough and comprehensive, blending the ideal and practical
in harmonious proportions ; ibfl n atom of things have been de-
veloped and the pupils taught to investigate and to think. It is
impossible for a young lady to be superficial or indolent under
the spurs and incentives to honorable eiertion which this insti-
tution supplies. There was certainly not a listless exercise
during the whole commencement. A larger attendance we have
not seen sinco the ante-bellum days. Not only people from the
country, but very many from a distance have been with us, not
only pleased but delighted with what they have seen and heard.
Miss Pond, the head of the department of instrumental music,
is a Boston lady, whose splendid culture is equaled by her
modesty and grace. The pieces executed on this occasion dem-
onstrated yet more convincingly her superior talents* and care-
ful trailing of her pupils. Mm Kincaid is certainly an artist of
rare gifts and some of her pupils bid fair to achieve more than
local distinction with the brush. They have done well-such
was the verdict not only of the masses, but of critics and con-
noisseurs. The crayon work was particularly commended. Some
of the portraits were real masterpieces, while the palntlugs in
oil were highly creditable. The Operetta was the most beauti-
ful thing we ever saw on a stage. It would have done credit to

artieaM of national fame. Miss Withorspoon rose to heigthB of
song that we havo nevor heard surpassed. One of her selections
was from "Ermlnie," which was on the boards in New York for
three hundred consecutive nights. Our praise is not extrava-
gant- it will meet the approval of the "sober secoad thought"
of every appreciative auditor.

After twelve months of success, unprecedented tn the history of
this worthy institution, a fitting close in tho shapo of the most
brilliant commencement ever enjoyed by its patrons and friends
has just passod. The unanimous verdict is that this commence-
ment far surpassed anything evor before attempted by this pop-
(Atlanta Constitution. June 11, 1887,)
The commencement was a grand ovation from beginning to
end. The uuiversal verdict is that it was tho best the college
has over had. The management of this college, by President R.
W. Smith, and his corps of assistants, has been signally success-
ful. During the past year there have been one hundred and forty-
six students in attendance. The college is thoroughly equipped
in every department, and is an honor to LaOrango. It has a
host of friends and patrons, many of whom wcro present to wit-
ness its commencement. What they saw convinced them that
this is a model school. LaOrange honors President Smith and
his assistants for their noble work.
The Quartette, composed or Misses Luolla Pond and Pauline
Witherspoon and Messrs. E. B. and A. M. Smith, furnish music
that will challenge comparison with the best productions of pro-
fessionals.' The audience was completely captivated by the first
selection, as was manifested by a hearty encore, and each subse-
quent appearance only intensified the delight of the auditors.
Miss Pond as instrumentalist, and Miss Witherspoon as vocalist,
are finished mrU tU t in their respective lines, and nono who
heard them were disappointed. The Messrs. Smith are equally
accomplished in vocal training and contributed equally as much
to the pleasure and success of the entertaininent.--r<>i/rfrt a<1

state. He is practical, thorough, and progressive in his meth-
ods, untiring as a worker, and nover fails to enlist the Interest
of the entire school in the exercises and discussions. Those who
have attended tho institute have been greatly improved in their
knowledge of tho subjects and methods of teaching, and
